From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

David Dunn (born December 27, 1979 in Great Harwood, Lancashire, England) is an England football player who currently plays for Birmingham City as a midfielder.

He initially joined Blackburn Rovers as a trainee at the beginning of 1997, debuting in his first game, a goalless draw against Everton, as a 70th minute substitute on September 26, 1998. However, he also was substituted after 81 minutes.

Dunn's debut goal came in a 1-3 victory against Aston Villa, on February 6, 1999. Dunn is sometimes dubbed "the New Gazza", a testament to his skill and ability levels.

On the verge for a full England call-up in 1999, his more surprising entrance didn't come until September 2002, in a controversial swap with Kieron Dyer.

Having fallen out of personal favour with Blackburn boss, Graeme Souness, in Summer 2003 Dunn was ready to move on to another club, and, having had several offers rejected, including a first, unaccepted offer from Birmingham City, a rejuvenated bid of around 5.5 million pounds was accepted.

Dunn signed a four-year contract for Birmingham. His debut, a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on August 16, 2003, was celebrated in style by Dunn, as he was the goalscorer.

However, a hamstring injury occurred in February 2004, and, after an attempted comeback, he found himself sitting out regularly once again. He made his attempted comeback on May 1, but traces of the injury were still inhibiting his progress. By the beginning of the 2004/05 campaign, he seemed to be back in his best form, with a regular first-team appearance and a couple of goals to boot. However injury struck again and he missed most of the latter two thirds of the season and is still on the sick list at the start of the 2005/06 season.
